Welcome back folks. As someone that bought into Opus I and started playing locally during Opus II, I have a decent collection. There hasn’t been much power creep in this game yet, so I still use lots of my staples from the earlier Opuses. However, some cards in my collection are as pale as a ghost, meaning they never see the light of day.
Why haven’t I played these cards? Well some of them suck. That is not the case for all of them though, but there is generally better stuff to play with if your goal is be competitive. Maybe I am not creative enough to utilize some of the more niche cards, but I think there are strong cards in this game that set themselves aside from the others. These are the cards that we call staples.

Hello Mysidians, welcome to this week’s article. Today I am going to talk about the many options available to players in a Mono Wind Deck. The tricky part about Mono Wind is that there are many fantastic backups that do not remove themselves, so it is impossible to fit them all in one list. Once you have played 5 backups that cannot be removed, any further backups you draw will just be CP. Since Mono Wind is very efficient, you will realistically be able to break and play more backups throughout your matches, so having breakable backups is a must. Not to mention Wind has some fantastic breakable backups in the form of Archer and White Mage.
Happy New Year Mysidians! In what has turned out to be my final time playing FFTCG in 2018, I went 2-1 in a four player round robin. It was a really fun locals, even though most the usual crowd was busy with their holidays. We also had a special gust this week, as my cousin from Argentina was visiting Vancouver. The morning of the locals I taught him how to play FFTCG, and he ended up playing several exhibitions at Magic Stronghold that night. He said he is going to check if the game is available in Argentina, but I have heard it isn’t available in Brazil, so I doubt it is officially support in Argentina either (although he should be able to find some Spanish cards online if he is really interested).
This week I took a break from Mono Earth and decided to try something different. I had been testing a lot with Mono Wind and Mono Ice in the last few weeks, and I settled on Mono Wind, because it just felt more consistent. My deck list can be found here.
